On Friday June 29th, on the OLM-Souissi stage, will be performing The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye, the man with twenty-four awards including four Grammys and eight Billboard Music Awards, the source pointed out in a press release.

A discreet but ultra-sought-after star, this 28-year-old Canadian has acquired exceptional notoriety in only three years, tracing an unprecedented path in a sound universe that oscillates between funk, electro, R&B and pop rap, it added.

Since his second album Beauty Behind the Madness, released in 2015, the singer and producer of Ethiopian origin jostles the codes and has had multiple collaboration with artists such as Daft Punk, Lana del Rey, Lady Gaga, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar, with whom he has made the single Pray For Me for the recent blockbuster Black Panther.

Released in March 2018, his latest EP, My Dear Melancholy, will be at the heart of a performance that promises to be exceptional, according to the same source.

The 17th edition of the Mawazine Festival Rhythms of the World will be held under the patronage of HM King Mohammed VI from 22 to 30 June.

Established in 2001, the Mawazine Festival Rhythms of the World is the essential rendezvous for music amateurs in Morocco drawing for the past 15 years, over 2 million festivalgoers at each edition.

Held over a period of nine days, Mawazine offers a rich and diversified program where performers from all four corners of the world make of the cities of Rabat and Salé a world stage for music.
